Famed 'Monkey Island' - anchor out and watch the monkeys come to the beach in the evening to play. Decent anchorage for going out to sea next morning. Quiet and peaceful. Tidal range of 3 feet. Some wind protection from the east. No wakes or parties.
Being skeptical, I thought, yeah right, must be a little sarcasm because Monkeys don't live in South Carolina. They must be joking. This is probably a place where small power boaters pull on shore to party and the monkeys are really drunken boaters.
So I googled it. We all know Google knows everything! Sure enough it was true! Real monkeys do live on this island! They were brought here in 1979 to research on the oral polio vaccine. Since then they have grown into a breeding colony of 4,000 Rhesus monkeys with 750 babies born each year. That was good enough for me. I was ready to go!
